Tom was on time, in exactly the spot we agreed to meet, and was very knowledgeable regarding Croatian and American history. He pointed out some Game of Thrones sights along with our Essentials tour and was accommodating to the teenagers in the group. We highly recommend him as a tour guide.

We thoroughly enjoyed Tomislav's informative tour of Dubrovinik. His fact-filled narration delivered with lots of humorous asides, gave our group lots to discuss after the tour. Tom answered all of our questions and gave suggestions for other activities. It was a privilege to have such an enthusiastic guide!

Tom deserves top marks for his excellence as a guide. We were a group of 7 with varied interests and perspectives. He managed to keep us all enthralled for the full tour and we all felt as though we had a good understanding and insight into Dubrovnik both historically and from a current point of view. Tom has a lovely way of connecting with his audience and dazzled us with his knowledge, good sense of humour and general personability. We felt like we'd won the lottery!

Our tour of Dubruvnick with Tom was wonderful. He is so knowledgeable of the area in history, culture, and georgraphy. He made the cites we visited alive because of his passion and love of the own. My whole group would recommend him highly - we, also, had a fun time seeing the sighs around town and Lockrum where Game of Thrones has been filmed. Thank you Tomislav!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cheryl, Believe me the pleasure was all mine. I really enjoyed our time together and I'm truly honored by your kind review. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom

This was a great way to start our holiday in Dubrovnik. Tom is able to impart his vast historical knowledge of the city in a clear and entertaining way. It's well worth the money to have a private tour rather than to be part of a large group. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jason, I am glad that you enjoyed my personal contribution to your first encounter to Dubrovnik. I hope that my suggestions on what to do and see while here will come in handy. Best regards, Tom

Three of the five of us have trouble walking. Tom did a GREAT job customizing the tour to fit our needs. He "parked" the older folks at a nice restaurant with nearby shopping while two of us walked the wall with him. So much fun. Totally pleased with our tour and our guide! Would ask for him again, for sure.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ward, Thank you for these kind words. Moving around the Old Town of Dubrovnik can be a bit challenging for the persons with limited mobility so I'm glad that the ladies found the tour as enjoyable as much as you did. Please extend my regards to the ladies and tell them that it was a pleasure to tour with them. Tom

What can we say about Tomislav. He is the BEST. We were 6 friends on a cruise. His emails to organize were spot on. From the minute we met we knew it was going to be great and it turned out to be the best day. His knowledge, passion and explanation of his country was excellent. I had been to Dubrovnik before but Tom showed us places we should have seen the first time, and explained the history in a way that we could all understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a tour in Croatia

My partner and I toured the Old Town of Dubrovnik with Tom on July 2, 2015. He is an exceptional guide with a wealth of information about the landmarks and history of the Town. Our tour was distinguished by the depth and breadth of his knowledge which he generously shared, especially the historical, political & cultural background of Dubrovnik, the country of Croatia and the region. His English is flawless, his personality well suited for a guide. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bill, I hope that the rest of your Croatian holiday will be equally enjoyable and that the information I provided during our tour will help you in understanding and appreciating the country and its people. Happy trails! Tom

Tom was wonderful. Fluent in English and a real expert in the very interesting history of Dubrovnik. We learned a lot from him that we would not have known if we had toured around on our own. He was flexible with our special needs and preferences. His driver was also terrific. Highly recommended.

His sense of humor and knowledge of the city was top notch. I would recommend him for anyone wanting an exceptional guide. Thank you Tom! Best regards, Michele Zambie

Tom was an outstanding guide for our group of 14. We arrive on Celebrity Equinox. Tom gave us tour of Cavtat, Scenic Kovanie valley, Ljuta river water mill and Dubrovnik. He was punctual, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant to everyone. He made for all of usa day to remember. We highly recommend him. He is a star guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carlos, Thank you very much. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour and that the time we spent touring enabled you to learn something about my hometown and the surrounding region.

We loved our time with Tom. We arranged this at the last minute to maximize our time in the wonderful city of Dubrovnik. Tomislav exceeded our expectations in every way. He was very laid back, flexible, ridiculously patient with our 6 year old's many questions, and super knowledgeable about the area. We loved our time in the Old City and on Lokrum. He adapted our plan as the day unfolded based on our needs and circumstances like weather, crowds, etc. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kimberly, Thank you. I would just like to add that I personally enjoyed the tour as well, including Maya's numerous questions (I was actually amazed how intelligent and well thought these questions were, given the fact that she's only 6). I had a great time touring with your lovely family. Give my regards to the girls and your husband.

My daughter, granddaughter and I had a wonderful day and have many wonderful memories of our tour and tour guide, Tom.
